I offer a safe, relaxed and confidential environment where you can look at the issues that concern you. I will listen without judging or pushing my opinions upon you. And I will strive to help you gain more understanding and acceptance of yourself and those around you. We all have the answers within us, we just sometimes need someone to assist us in finding them.
There are times in life when we need support to work through issues or problems that affect us and we do not always want to talk to the people who know us or who are involved. Having a person to talk to who won’t judge or impose their opinions on us, can be very empowering. Especially when we are working through a traumatic event or period of time when we are feeling vulnerable or unhappy . It is at these times that it can be an advantage to talk to a counsellor, who is not involved in our lives and we can walk away from, leaving our negative emotions behind. I could be that person, and by offering empathy, honesty and unconditional positive regard, I would strive to support you on your journey.
Going to a counsellor for the first time can be quite daunting and it is important that you find the right one for your needs. If you are unsure, then I am happy for you to come along and meet me before you make the commitment.
As a person-centred Counsellor I support adults in my private practice and children and adolescents in schools.
